Job Search Support Groups in Seattle

June 15th, 2009 by lewis

A few months ago, I mentioned a growing trend of job search support groups.  Last week, Kevin McClintic e-mailed me about a Seattle-based job search group: Notes from the Job Search.  Led by Steve Paul, they meet every week to:

  • Review each other’s resumes
  • Practice their elevator pitches
  • Share tips on how use online networking resources such as LinkedIn
The weekly meetings are free, and Steve hosts the events in two locations: one in North Seattle and the other West Seattle.
I haven’t had a chance to attend a meeting, but it sounds like a great place to share search tips and leads.  Most importantly, the group has a good track record.  Kevin tells me that two members recently received job offers.  Congrats to the Notes from the Job Search group, and keep up the good work!

    Thanks for the complements and for mentioning our groups. We do have a decent track record. From March through July, we had 20% or more of our active participants find work and while August was pretty bad, September and October were both over 10%.
